“…”

Daniel stood silent. He felt horrible, he had no idea who this girl was, but her whole world was ripping apart at the seams right in front of him.

He didn’t know her, but he wanted to help. He wanted to try his hardest.

He began stroking his hand against Rachel’s back, unknowingly spreading the putrid black goo all over her light blue sweater.

“T-There…there?”

Rachel shuddered at the sudden coldness on her sweater, but tried not to show it.  She wondered if these were the last few moments she’d ever spend with Daniel; if soon, he’d move on and find someone better than her, someone more beautiful…someone more talented…

No matter what he was going to, she wanted to express her gratitude for his attempt to cheer her up.  Again, she tried not to show how badly she was shaking from the chill seeping through the fabric of her favorite sweater. “Th-Thank…you…” she whispered. “D-Dan…iel….”

“D-Daniel…”

He blinked slowly.

He pulled his hand back, and looked at Rachel. It all slowly started to flood back. He continued to blink, as if several lights in his head started to blink back on.

“R-Rachel…”

But with the good also comes the bad. Daniel started to blink back tears as he remembered all he went through up until now.

“…R-Rachel…I-I’m so…”

He jerked his hand back sharply at the sight of the black goo.

Slowly, Rachel raised her head, her left cheek shining with teardrops.  Her eye was wide with surprise at the sudden gesture from her lover, and perhaps deep within, there was a faint spark of hope.

"D-Daniel…?  Wh-What’s…what’s the matter…d-darling?" The last word slipped out, falling from her tongue like a droplet of honey from the rim of a jar.  The one-eyed girl wanted to cover her mouth and mask that last word, but it was too late, as it had already escaped her.

Rachel looked even more surprised as she noticed the black tears pooling in Daniel’s eyes. “D-Daniel…” she mumbled, almost to herself, reaching up to brush them off of his cheeks. “Wh-What’s wrong…?”

“G-Girlfriend?” Daniel asked, stumbling a bit back. “B-But I…l-love…? I-I don’t remember anything…I-I don’t know who y-you are…y-you must have the wrong person. I-I’m sorry, y-you seem like a really nice person though…” Daniel said, swallowing a bit of saliva.

“I don’t know you…”

She couldn’t hold the tears back anymore.

Rachel started to cry, weak, animal-like whimpers emerging from her dry throat. “B-but…but…D-Daniel…I…” She couldn’t think of words that would make things better.  She was completely lost, and completely disoriented and confused.  Her Daniel — the love of her life and the center of her world — didn’t remember her at all.  He had forgotten her.

If he didn’t remember her…how could he love her back?

Rachel tried to step forward and approach the boy once more, but her legs felt tangled, and she tripped.  Her knees hit the dewy grass and she wept, weakly reaching out for him.  She wanted to tell him she needed him, but she held the words back.

“P-please…please, don’t go…p-please….”

Daniel was both equally perplexed and worried. He looked at the sweater clad girl with worried purple eyes. “A-Are you okay?” He asked, helping her up.

“What’s the matter? D-Did I do something wrong?”

Rachel’s lips quivered.  She burbled out a weak apology before falling into Daniel’s arms, embracing him tightly, pulling him close to her.  Tears spilled freely from her left eye, wetting his shoulder. “I-I’m scared, Daniel…th-this all feels like a…a b-bad dream….”

She tried to raise her head and look at him again, but her neck refused to move.  Her fingers dug into the fabric of his jacket, not strong enough to hurt, but enough to be noticed. “I-if you don’t…i-if I…I….” She lost the ability to form coherent sentences.  She was losing everything — she could only weakly shake her head, her hair brushing up against the front of her lover’s shirt.  The brown strands smelled vaguely like pine needles and fresh shampoo.

Rachel Cricket Ziemniak was falling apart.

Rachel was making her way through the forests of Oceana, staying close to the edge for once. Her feet made low pattering noises against the ground as she tried to stay as light and agile as a deer. Ironic, a darker part of her brain mumbled as…

"I…I think you’ve got the wrong person…um…Rachel…I-I don’t know you, apologies." He said, looking a bit sad. "Infact, I don’t even know where I am anymore…"

Rachel blinked in surprise, her hand slowly dropping to her side. “…Y-you don’t…know…me?” Nervously, she stepped closer to the cursed boy, her eye wide. “B-but, Daniel…Daniel, it’s me….”

She felt tears start to form, but hurriedly blinked them back, restraining herself from showing weakness.  “Daniel…D-Daniel, I-I’m Rachel…Rachel Ziemniak…I-I’m your girlfriend….” Rachel reached out and cupped the boy’s face in her hands. “W-we…we live together.  You and I, w-we do everything together.  W-we sleep in the same bed, Daniel. I-I’m in love with you…I-I’ve been in love with you f-for so long, I….”

She stared deeply into his purple eyes, trying to find a piece of the Daniel she knew so well.

"D-don’t you remember…?"

Rachel was making her way through the forests of Oceana, staying close to the edge for once.  Her feet made low pattering noises against the ground as she tried to stay as light and agile as a deer.  Ironic, a darker part of her brain mumbled as her hand brushed across the top of her head, her feet lightly moving over a fallen log.

Just then, she noticed Daniel standing a few feet away, just outside of the forest’s boundary.  Despite the cliche, her heart skipped a couple of beats, and as quietly as she could, she made her way over to the cursed boy.  Her cheeks were already flushed, and a smile had come to her face for the first time that day — she had missed him.

“D-Daniel!”

Daniel looked surprised and shocked as the sweater clad girl wrapped him in a tight hug. He looked back, his eyes widened, as he set them on Rachel. He bit his lip, looking deep into her eyes.

“I-I’m sorry…d-do I know you?” He asked, an eyebrow cocked.

Rachel giggled whimsically, tilting her head to one side.  “Wh-What are you talking about, dear?” She reached out and took one of his hands in hers, a gentle smile on her face. “I-It’s me, Daniel.  It’s Rachel.  Your girlfriend…~”

She felt far happier than usual at that moment, ever so glad to be reunited with the object of her affections.  However, she couldn’t stop tiny doubts from squirming around in the dark recesses of her mind.
